not even a paraphrase. just thoughts.
Hey, guess what – the LORD God, the one who made this whole world, the one in charge, the one who rules over the sun and the moon and the stars, the one who made the universe out of nothing, who spoke it all into being —
He is like a shepherd to me.
He provides all I need
He cares for me
He leads me to good places
He sees to my nourishment
but also provides me with rest
He is with me even in the darkest times.
With him as my loving, caring shepherd,
what more could I possibly need?
